Get Localized String from SharePoint Resource file in Javascript

Javascript helps in many cases to make an application complete. In SharePoint you also can use resource files in order to support multilanguage scenarios. But how to get those text information in a javascript?  I found a possibility which i’d like to present here. The trick is to get the desired text by using a literal control in your javascript:



<script type="text/javascript">
var confirmText = "<sharepoint:encodedliteral runat='server' text='<%$Resources:common,confirmText%>' EncodeMethod='EcmaScriptStringLiteralEncode'/>";

</sharepoint:encodedliteral></script>


Hope this helps you.
